Areas of special interest

I run Solas Child Therapy in Kilcock which is a child friendly non clinical purpose built playroom, specialising in working with very young children of three years up to adolescence who experience a variety of behavioural, emotional and developmental issues. I have been doing this for over fifteen years. I believe in supporting and educating parents in understanding and managing their child’s needs at home. Furthermore I specialise in parent-child therapeutic interventions which helps parents engage more directly in their child’s process under guidance. (Filial Therapy & Theraplay.)
I work with adults too.
I also work with professionals in the health and helping professions requiring supervision.
